Dhcpcd is not [[Dhcpd]]
 
 
 
In rc.conf, if you configure your interface to use dhcp, like this:
 
 
 
interface=eth0
 
address=
 
netmask=
 
gateway=
 
 
 
''dhcpcd'' will be started automatically from the ''network'' script found in /etc/rc.d and configured in /etc/rc.conf in the DAEMONS array
 
 
 
You can run to check it out for yourself
 
ps -ax
 
  710 ?        Ss    0:00 dhcpcd -q eth0
 
 
 
So, you don't need to add ''dhcpcd'' daemon
 
 
 
== Configuration ==
 
=== Prevent dhcpcd to change /etc/resolv.conf ===
 
just add a line in ''/etc/dhcpcd.conf''
 
nohook resolv.conf
